[Canadian Tire] Two Gerber knives 1/2 off at CT

Two Gerber knives on sale this week at Canadian Tire for ½ price.

The Gerber Torch II Tanto on for 37.49 at http://www.canadiantire.ca/en/pdp/gerbe ... xFVfYWwUjw (currently 37.90 at amazon.com 4.4 stars)

Gerber LMF II Infantry Fixed Blade for 59.99 at http://www.canadiantire.ca/en/pdp/gerbe ... reviews_li (currently 63.08 at amazon.com –no ratings on amazon but well rated on CT’s site) Note the Infantry Blade features: Lashing holes for use as spear, Leg Straps, sheath, integrated sharpener and is MOLLE compatible.

These seem like much nicer knives than the Bear Grylls ones. According to the CT guy, the LMF was really selling, I got the last one at CT McLeod in Calgary.

The LMF is a steal at that price. It's a big heavy knife that really is only good for outdoors or zombie attacks. I think you could open up a car roof with the thing it's so beefy. That blade was $130 not too long ago. $100 in US fi you could get it.

The torche would be a solid pocket knife but likely will not last years of hacking away at stuff. But that is what the LMF is for.

Sidenote The Gerber Zombie apocalypse Survival Kit is on at amazon.ca for $260.33 right now (http://www.amazon.ca/Gerber-30-000601-Z ... alypse+kit ) which seems to be its lowest price for the last year (http://ca.**************.com/product/B00842AIX0). Also tempting for those walking dead fans – the reviews on the amazon site are a hoot. Seems like a good deal if you need/want the extra axe and machetes.
Would love to be able to grab this at a $100-150 range.

The Gerber LMF seems like a good knife, but Gerber isn't the same company they used to be.

IMHO a better buy is a folding Sanrenmu/enlan/Ganzo knife, or a this fixed blade knock-off Strider HT from Fasttech http://www.fasttech.com/products/1901/1 ... th-hunting
Bought the faux strider and can confirm that it's surprisingly good quality and a tough MOFO, as seen in this destruction test video towards the end (after 10 minutes or so):

No plastic handles to fail, just a thick chunk of sharp metal wrapped in paracord :)

The LMF does. If you look closely on TV you will see some of the survival shows carrying this. I would use a lot of caution buying knock offs but then who is likely to use this as an actual survival knife... LMF is basically modern bowie knife in my mind. Massive, indestructible, and for scaring the girlfriend. Strap that to your leg when you go for a hike in the river valley.

The LMF is only partial tang, this was necessary for the handle to be insulated against electric shock.

Just my opinion, the LMF is a lousy survival knife. It has serrations in the bottom of the blade that interfere with cutting and batoning. It is unnecessarily heavy and and who needs a glass breaker in the wild? :razz: The steel is also relatively soft.

The LMF was designed for military use. It has been used by the US military as a rescue knife for fighter pilots. The knife was used in Afghanistan to cut through a live wire to cut off power to searchlights at an enemy camp. :)

I own the LMF, it's a fun 'toy' for most of us, not really a useable knife unless you are in a rescue situation.

If you are planning to use one for self defense, the blade would have to be longer then the palm of your hand.

Please don't buy these knives for 'self defense,' you are just asking for legal trouble.
